ties with israel by now, could have cut off all intelligence cooperation with the united states. none of that has happened. it's important at a difficult time like this to bear in mind where things could have gone in a much more negative direction. it's been a terrible week for the united states, but i'm still hopeful about a lot of the arab spring. we've got to navigate some tough times right now, and syria remains a huge mess. but if you ask me how things are compared to how i would have guessed a year ago, probably better than i would have surmised. >> the u.s. still controls pursestrings in as much of the foreign aid to that part of the world. will that allow the u.s. to continue to exert some influence? >> absolutely. i think president morsi knows this in egypt. it's part of why he's sensitive to the fact that his initial reaction to this video. however understandable at a religious level is inappropriate at a political level, at a leadership level. i'd like to hope he would have figured this out on his own, but it's nice to have $1.5 billion worth of leverage on our side. >> chu

of a man, the president of the united states, in this election. do we use the right criteria? >> no. you know, i think one of the reasons i got interested in doing this piece, in obama's life, was it struck me. i mean, just looking at it from afar that some of the problems that used to affect the evaluation of pro athletes, pro sports has gotten over, sort of like how to separate out luck from skill and how not to blame, you know, assigning credit and blame where credit and blame is due on a baseball field, but we don't really do in political life, especially with the president. he's forever credited and blamed for things that he actually has often very little control over. >> you played a kind of game with the president where you said to him, mr. president, let's assume that you're no longer president and i'm president, meaning you. >> yeah. >> what are the things i need to know about this job? and you took a few passes. >> i had to do it a few times. it took him a little while for him to get used to the idea i was president. he didn't like that. >> what did he say was important for you
